Dorwest Herbs Helps Pets Be Happy In Their Skin This Summer

Data from pet insurance companies show that pet skin conditions are the second most common reason for vet visits1 and with the rising mercury signalling an increase in pollen counts, spring and summer can be busy months for vets! Dorwest Herbs are stepping in to help with their ‘Happy In My Skin’ Campaign. Manufacturers of Garlic and Fenugreek Tablets and Mixed Vegetable Tablets – both licensed herbal veterinary medicines proven to provide symptomatic relief for skin conditions of dogs and cats and work synergistically when administered together – Dorwest have fantastic offers, competitions and advice on hand.

Dorwest ‘Skin Product Packs’, containing Garlic and Fenugreek Tablets and Mixed Vegetable Tablets (4×100 tablets and 2×200 tablets of each medicine) and display materials (technical information sheet for vets, leaflet holder, skin leaflets and skin poster) will be available to vets for only £59. That is a huge 40% discount on the normal price, and represents a retail value of £121.20 – over 50% mark-up! The offer starts on the 13th May* and is only available when ordered directly from Dorwest. There will be faxback order forms available in the upcoming Dorwest newsletter or alternatively, contact the team by e-mailing trade@dorwest.com or calling 01308 897272. Display materials are also available separately if required.

There are plenty of Dorwest resources that vets can use to aid communication with their clients about skin disease, including the client leaflets included in the Dorwest skin packs. Plucky Merlin the Dorwest dog is once again documenting his haphazard life on his blog at http://merlintakescontrol.wordpress.com. He thinks that it’s just the gorgeous Lola that has got him all hot and bothered but soon realises that actually, it’s his skin. Constant itching leaves him pretty fed up and events turn serious when Merlin resorts to drastic measures to try and save face. The blog provides a fun way for pet owners to understand more about skin disease.

Facebook is another focus, with a fantastic competition to find the pet who epitomises the concept of being ‘Happy In My Skin’. Dorwest aren’t looking for the prettiest, cleverest or funniest pooch in the world but if you know a pet that is totally at one with themselves, get snapping and submit the best photo to the Dorwest Facebook page (www.facebook.com/dorwest). The top shot will win a luxury two night weekend break at The Old Swan & Minster Mill in the beautiful Cotswolds for two and their dog, worth a staggering £575. Dinner is included for one night, not forgetting a ‘dog’s dinner’ for canine companions too! The competition kicks off on the 1st May and will run for five weeks.

Dorwest Herbs Managing Director, Jo Boughton-White says; “Summer should be a carefree and fun time for everyone, including our pets. We hope that everyone will join Dorwest in their mission to make sure that every cat and dog are ‘Happy In Their Skin’, every day.”
